Forever Home Society

For over 20 years, Our Companions Animal Rescue has served our communities’ most vulnerable animals. A special group of donors in our Forever Home Society (FHS) ensure that our life-saving programs will remain strong for years to come.

The FHS was established to recognize individuals who have included Our Companions in their estate plans through charitable bequests, trusts, retirement plans or other provisions. By including Our Companions in your estate plans, you will become a member of our Forever Home Society, which will help us to fulfill our promise to help thousands of homeless, abused and neglected animals who have no other place to turn.

If you have already included Our Companions in your estate plans, please let us know so we can welcome you as a member of the Forever Home Society as well.


More information is available in our Forever Home Society Brochure.

Giving is one of life’s greatest satisfactions, especially when you know that your gifts will improve the lives of deserving animals for generations to come. We want to thank this group of special donors and hope you will consider joining them by making a planned gift.
